Trinity School's carefully designed Studio Art Program begins in the seventh and eighth grades and picks up again in the junior and senior years.
Students gain confidence in basic drawing skills in the seventh grade and progress to working in a variety of color media in the eighth grade, including colored pencil, pastel and watercolor. In their final project, they also study an American artist and reproduce one of that artist’s works.
The junior and senior years continue to focus on color media with the introduction of acrylic painting technique, challenging portraiture, figurative works and the study of art history from prehistoric to modern times. Student work from each grade is on display in the school’s Fine Arts Festival in May.
